Arduino has become the open-source electronics platform of choice for hobbyists interested in robotics and programming. And regardless of your experience level or expertise, if you’re interested in learning what you can do with Arduino, there’s no better way to do so than cracking open a book or eBook on the subject. Well, actually, there is one better way: cracking open 15 different ebooks on the subject. That's because, for a limited time, you can name your own price on this comprehensive Arduino Hacker eBook Bundle.
This is one of StackSocial’s “Pay What You Want” bundles, which means that you can get some of the ebooks included in the deal for whatever you feel like paying. But if you exceed the average price (a little over $16 as of this writing), you’re guaranteed to take home all 15 of the ebooks, which includes (but is by no means limited to) the following informative titles:
This step-by-step guide to using Arduino for various atmospheric monitoring gadgets will show you how to construct your own carbon monoxide detector, as well as various other devices that will show you the quality (or lack thereof) of the air you breathe.
Purportedly the best way to “Kickstart Your Arduino Journey with Guides for 25+ Hands-on Projects,” Make offers know-how for building more than 25 beginner-friendly projects with Arduino, including “multicolor flashing lights, timers, tools for testing circuits, sound effects, motor control, and more exciting DIY projects.”
The Arduino-compatible FLORA platform will allow you to create myriad wearable gadgets like LED brooches and light-up earrings with the help of this helpful guide.
Similar to the atmospheric monitoring guide, this ebook contains all the know-how necessary to make devices that measure noise levels, water purity, and even electromagnetic interference, among other environmental factors.
A basic beginner's guide to everything Arduino, this was authored in part by none other than Arduino co-founder Massimo Banzi.
Those interested in Netduino, based on the .NET Micro Framework, will find all they need to know in this guide by Chris Walker.
And that’s just six of the total of 15 ebooks included in this promotion. Altogether, the 15 titles in the bundle add up to a value of some $278, and you can get them all for a steal by heading over to StackSocial and beating the current average price. If you choose to pay less, you won’t get all 15 ebooks, but you will at least get some proportionate fraction of the bundle, so no matter what you feel like spending this is a good way to get your Arduino library started.
